MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – David Ortiz homered twice for the second straight game and the Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 9-4 on Wednesday night.
Big Papi went 3 for 5 with two RBIs, one night after a four-hit performance against his former team. Both of his homeruns – off Kevin Correia in the third and Caleb Theilbar in the fifth – traveled more than 400 feet into the right-field upper deck at Target Field, where he’s batting .528 in 13 career games.
It was more than enough for Felix Doubront, who allowed a run on seven hits in 6 1-3 innings and retired nine straight at one point. Doubront hadn’t won since April 3 at Baltimore, his first start of the season.
